Aer Lingus to temporarily lay-off 129 staff at Shannon Airport

Aer Lingus is to lay-off 129 staff at Shannon Airport for three months as there have been no flights from Shannon since April.

Beginning next Monday, the 129 staff will be put on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment for the three-month lay-off.

Last Friday, the airliner issued its full-year results which revealed an operating loss of €361 million in the year 2020, which is the largest ever loss in the airliner’s history.

As no air traffic has been operating in Shannon Airport, Aer Lingus concluded the unsustainability of rostering its staff to the current levels when there is no work available.

Based on work requirements from Shannon, the company will either be extending or changing the lay-off time.
